"Girl Rising" Limited Engagement April 20-25

Last month I took my two eldest children to see "Girl Rising"; it spawned a lot of questions and comments which was exactly what I had hoped. "Girl Rising" journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change a girl - and the world.

"Girl Rising" just started a one-week run at Regal Union Square Stadium 14, at 850 Broadway and is only playing until April 25th. Here is a link to the trailer:

It's a great film - not too heavy - that clearly communicates what we already know - that when you educate a girl, you educate a nation. Educating a girl developing country has a multiplier effect...
- she‘ll marry later and have fewer, healthier children
- for every extra year of schooling, her income will increase by 10 – 25 percent
- and she’ll reinvest 90 percent of the money she earns back into her family.
No matter who you are and what you believe in, thats a great ROI.
